Sleeptime

I hear the silence it is so very loud, It vibrates ’round me like a bomb. I hear the silence it is so very quiet, It seeps in every corner of my being. I hear the silence yelling from within, I hear the silence deafening all around, I hear the silence crushing everything, I hear…

Adrift

Set adrift in the dark, Alone with no light, Clouds hide the moon, The stars do not shine. What do I have? There is nothing here. Where do I go? There is no where, I read your words, Written so long ago, The only warmth I know, I wrap my heart in them. They are…

What NoOne Noticed

Millions of little shards, Scattered among the sand, Drifting with dirt, Blown away on the wind, Washed away with the tides. All the little pieces – That use to fit together, All the little pieces – No longer matching, All the little pieces – All that is left. Gone is the heart, Gone is the…

Hide it All

Put on the smile, Hide the tears, Show no weakness, Show no sadness Just a happy face, Just a friendly word, Just a sure, that’s fine, Of course I understand. Help out everyone, Give your all to them, Do it over and over, Give your all again. Hide the scars, Hide the bruises, Deny the…

S.S. Lost and Forgotten

I am not pretty For I have traveled many journeys I am not wealthy For I have not many possessions My lines are not sleek But they are mine My decks are not shiny But they are mine I am not the fastest But I hold the course I am not the strongest But I…

Nothing More

Yesterday seems gone, Every day passes, Sun rises and sets, It rains..it pours, And on it goes. Make up reasons, Say your whys, Cry your tears, And hide your eyes, Reason is gone. Ever more needs, Doing it again, Bring all you have, Uphill all the way, Time will not hide I know too well….

She

She was dressed plainly, Simple cotton peasant frock, She didn’t wish for more, Satin and lace were not hers. Smudges of her solitary work Showed upon brow and cheek, They seemed almost proper Even fitting with her smile. She walked the miles to town, She sold her wares for tuppence, They were simple but good,…

Random Thoughts

Why do those that think the least of you expect the most from you? Why complain if you do not want to work for change? If we do not want to be real good guys why still make movies where the good guys win sometimes? Is truth what you believe or what is real? Why…

TOUCH.

Shuttering dreams, Nightmare – It seems. Hanging. Waiting. Social approval. Perhaps,it is removal. Standing alone, Watch people go by. Unnoticed beauty. Action is neutral. Reaction is brutal. Words you offered Are promises slaughtered. It gets better. Life was given, Sins¬†forgiven. In public. Awkward. Reading a book. Lunatic. Yes! Oh my gosh! Look! Moving forward. Wait…

I Miss You

I miss you When you are gone, The skies are gray, Long are the days, When I am alone. I miss you When you are gone, The silence is loud, My tears fill the clouds, When I am alone. I miss you When you are gone, Forever lasts the night, Memories fill my sight, When…

NightTime

I open my eyes, I look around but you are not there, I whisper your name, I get no reply. I look at the clock, Another hour passed, I sigh and close my eyes, I pull the covers higher, I wish in the dark. Lightening flashes, Thunder rolls, Rain pours, And so my tears, I…

Winter

As winter, so is his Fate Storm comes again, Clouds block the Sun Wind blows, the world turns white How long will it last The question hangs Just like the breath In the air thick and heavy, waiting He stands at the door You should go Before its too late Get wood, we will need…
